Exclusive Preview: QUANTUM & WOODY #1

Quantum & Woody #1 hit your local comic book store on January 29, but thanks to Valiant Entertainment, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive four-page preview.

Quantum & Woody #1 is written by Christopher Hastings, with pencils & inks by Ryan Browne, Ruth Redmond handles colors, and you will read Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou letters.

The lines of sight used on page three are very well done, Browne talked with us about his philosophy as a visual storyteller and creating excitement with camera angles.


“I’m always aware of how shot selection affects the emotion/mood of the given panel. Simple stuff like a shot from below a figure makes them more imposing and a shot looking down on a character makes them look small and meek. Extreme close-ups to increase the intensity, tilted camera angles create a more dynamic and uneasy feeling for the viewer, and wide establishing shots are good to have at least once per page so the reader remembers where everyone is in relation to one another. I think about film a lot more than I think about comics with my storytelling and I think that shows,” said Browne.

About the issue:
Quantum & Woody — the worst superhero duo in the world — are Earth’s LAST hope against stopping a coalition of mad scientists from destroying the planet!

Quantum & Woody #1 has an FOC (final order cutoff) of January 6, so if you like what you see, bug your local comic book shop.
